My Favourite 2 Minutes of the Day

By Sjay235 @naturalmommainm
Or should that be the night?
I should just state now, I do not overly enjoy getting up during the night to feed Isabelle, but it also isn't as horrific as people make it seem. Isabelle wakes, eats and goes back to sleep, so luckily I'm not up for more than 10 minutes at a time. And there is a little part of that routine that is my favorite time of each day...
Just after she finishes eating and I lie her on my lap to wipe her mouth (she's a messy eater) she has the most satisfied look on her face as she stretches out, eyes shut as she falls back to sleep. That face alone is the most wonderful thing. Then, I pop her onto my shoulder to burp her and, asleep, she flops over my shoulder, head snuggled in, arms dangling down. This little cuddle is the best I ever get, and I sometimes feel like keeping her there forever.
The best thing about all of this? I am the only person in the world who gets to experience these special few moments with her and it's truly wonderful, every single night.
